George is working his way up his uncle’s company. When he meets Angela and falls head over heals for her instantly his life really appears to be going places. The trouble is George already has a girlfriend, Alice, and she isn’t willing to go quietly.
As George (Montgomery Clift) contemplates his options Alice (Shelley Winters) reveals a secret that will destroy his dreams.

Dark and disturbing, this movie isn’t to everyone’s tastes but the excellent acting and a well put together script combine to create a complete narrative around the hopelessly lost George.
